Mesh Filter Bag - SMALL (for brewing Mozzie Tea to treat Fungus Gnats)

$1.40 NZD

The small mesh bag measures around 10cms wide x 15cms tall. Both photos show this size bag. You only need 4 tablespoons of Mozzie Bits per 4.5 litres of water, so this bag will hold plenty (the photo shows about 5 tablespoons of granules in this small size bag so you can add even more than that if needed). There is also the medium mesh bag available separately (the medium measures about 15cm x 20cms).

As fantastic as mozzie tea is to treat Fungus Gnats, the Mozzie Bits granules themselves can be a pain to scoop out once soaked (not as annoying as Fungus Gnats though, argh). If you've already read How to Get Rid of Fungus Gnats you'll know about the two step method, using sticky traps to catch the adults, and brewing 'mozzie tea' to kill the larvae. Except brewing the tea is the easy bit (just soak the granules in warm water).

But once brewed, you've got lots of used Mozzie Bits granules floating around, some on top, some sunk to the bottom. You can scoop them out or strain them out using a sieve, if you have a sieve, as well as spare containers to tip everything into. Hopefully without spilling the tea everywhere when you tip. Messy, fiddly and a waste of tea!

Or - like a teabag lets the tea-leaves brew without ending up in your cuppa - you could just pop the Mozzie Bits granules in this reusable mesh bag. Now once brewed, you just remove the bag, granules and all, tip them in the bin, and water your plants. No more Fungus Gnats. No extra containers needed. No more fuss!

"Super impressed with this business. Something that is lost nowadays, is customer service. This however is not the case with Anna from Love that Leaf. Very happy with my purchase, very happy with the product information provided and very happy with the quick shipping and great packaging. Thanks!" Melayna Anderson

"By far the best customer care I've had in a long time. Website is such a wealth of information and the email with instructions for use after my purchase was fantastic. The pipette for measuring the correct amount was such a great inclusion, and the personalised message on the package was very cool. Definitely my go to shop for plant supplies now.
